Understanding the NDIS
The NDIS provides people with a disability greater choice and control to achieve their goals and aspirations.
The NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme and it is a new way for people with disabilities to get funding to pay for the supports they need.
The NDIS provides people with disability, their families and carers, with:
- More choice around the supports received.
- Increased control and flexibility around how and when those supports are provided.
- A lifetime approach to the delivery of disability support services, and a support plan that changes to reflect changes in personal circumstances over time.
- Greater opportunity for early intervention (support provided before the point of crisis, to reduce the impact of disability)

From 1st July 2019, providers of attendant care and community centre-based activities can charge a higher support price limit. This is through the TTP.
These TTP prices are charged to a range of support services, including allied health, daily personal activities, group and center-based activities, high intensity daily personal activities, participation in community, social and civic activities, and more.
